2 employee's, 55 sheets of paper & 1 1/2 hours needed for each drawing. This is cheaper then ball machines?

This shows they are trying to cover up... BS is all I can think about this.

When are they going to get it in their heads, we want to see the drawing. See is believing. This ain't faith.

Thank you tnlotto. I never knew how they did the drawings and after seeing this, it really upsets me how they could have went so long back when they changed to RNG drawings to notice there was a problem with the drawings with all this so called checks and double checking they were doing.

According to Tennessee lottery it is as the ball drawing took 4 or more hrs in the morning and another 4 hrs for the evening draw.

What i feel is they never figured a way to use time management in calibrating the ball drawings or there was some laziness going on or they didn't ask other lottery's how they managed to conduct 2 drawings a day without problems. Hence Rebecca switched to computers to cut costs.

someone affiliated with the TN lottery said that some of the employees were whining and moaning about having to set up the ball machines.they said this was also another reason hargrove went to RNG.it pisses me off to think some lazy idiots are part of the reason we have RNG now.

4hours for what? I watch keno machines at the casino spit out "20" numbered balls every 5 minutes or less, 20 hours a day, every day! I still feel inside RNG's are for two reasons only. Max profit and least pay out. The RNG puts out the number that was played the least that draw. The days of hitting multiple hits on the same day are over! The computer won't let it happen. But it's ok! I've already adjusted to not playing any RNG games. Until online comes back! and my plays wont' be seen by the computer.

This is Tennessee, good people. We have more politicians and state employees in jail than any other state. There are 5 more in Memphis that should be in jail right now. This video is a lame attempt to build confidence in an otherwise corrupt system. When the first lotto employee gets fired and wants revenge, we will find out the truth. Until then we can do nothing but wait.

did he say that for every drawing they waste 55 sheets of paper? After 2 years what they do with those sheets of papers..I also think he said that before each drawing they have a bunch of sheets of paper with 70 steps they must go through before each drawing...Are they flying a space shuttle or something...
something that caught my eyes, is that the staff do pre-test but to check for randomness and not SOLELY for malfunctioning of the machine...
That's worse than a bank safe...

I see no less than 8 cables coming out of the dedicated modem affixed to the wall.
